“TMS therapy totally changed my life. I came to Salience over two years ago, confident that I was a hopeless case, beyond saving by anything.”

“TMS therapy totally changed my life. I came to Salience over two years ago, confident that I was a hopeless case, beyond saving by anything. TMS was the last thing to try before ending my life. Two years (and several treatment cycles later), I only wish I had discovered TMS much earlier. My depressive symptoms (including the anxiety that comes with depression) are in remission. I am confident that my doctor can maintain this remission with booster treatments if needed. My mind is clear, and I can finally get back to work. Thank you Salience TMS, I can now find pleasures in my life again.”

“My experience was terrific and I would refer anyone suffering from anxiety or depression to this treatment through Salience.”

“I suffered from severe anxiety and panic attacks that felt a lot more like a heart attacks most of the time, the anxiety was causing me to have multiple health issues and was affecting my quality of life and my families lives. I tried multiple medications commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but my body was not able to metabolize them and they all caused me to have serious side effects. After trying 6 or 7 different medications, I was losing hope that I would be able to overcome my anxiety issues. That’s when I learned about TMS treatment. It took 3-4 weeks of the treatment before I really started to really kick in and start to resolve my issues. Although, I still feel some mild anxiety occasionally, I rarely have panic attacks anymore and the treatment caused virtually no side effects. The only side effect I experienced was that I was very tired after the first week or two of treatment, but this faded away quickly. It has been about 6 weeks since my last treatment and I continue to improve each day. I am truly grateful for TMS therapy and the wonderful folks who treated me at Salience. My experience was terrific and I would refer anyone suffering from anxiety or depression to this treatment through Salience. The communication before treatment began was very informative and I never felt pressured, each treatment experience was comfortable and the techs were very flexible to my needs, even the follow-ups after the treatment was complete were helpful, Salience really treats you like a VIP and is great to work with”

“Also having had so many adverse side effects from traditional medication treatments, I believe that this should be a first line treatment instead of last.”

“I would like to thank the staff at TMS Neuro Solutions for the recent care I received at the center. The professional care and atmosphere made the treatments comfortable and provided for a successful experience and improvement of symptoms of both anxiety and depression in my case. I would also like to express my belief that this treatment would benefit a number of people not only with anxiety and depression but perhaps many other symptoms involving memory care, as my memory was noticeably improved. Also having had so many adverse side effects from traditional medication treatments, I believe that this should be a first line treatment instead of last. I believe that people, who may benefit from treatment, are prevented from care because their occupations prevent treatments with medications, and they could treat with TMS Therapy without adverse side effects of drug therapy. It is my hope many more people can experience this treatment in the near future.”

“But in just the first weeks of treatment, TMS miraculously helped me conquer my depression.”

“I spent years battling my painful, disabling depression even while on medication. But in just the first weeks of treatment, TMS miraculously helped me conquer my depression. With the power of TMS, the black plaque veil, that had been stealing my life away, lifted. The happy life's sunlight, peace, and hope started streaming in. It's like going from hell to being alive in heaven, and TMS is my angel.”

“The effects have been truly life-changing and have given me back the ability to hope once again.”

“After a lifelong battle with depression and several medications that only half-way helped, I had very little hope left in finding a successful treatment of any kind. But after some hesitation, I finally decided to commit to NeuroStar treatment. I'm so glad I did! The effects have been truly life-changing and have given me back the ability to hope once again.”

“It’s like she is brand new. She is happy, energetic, hopeful, good-spirited and looks forward to each day.”

“I have to say that we have a new girl in the family. It's unbelievable the difference the treatment has made…I would say that she is the "old Lauri" we knew and loved, but it's more than that. It's like she is brand new. She is happy, energetic, hopeful, good-spirited and looks forward to each day. It's really amazing.”

“After the TMS treatment, I felt like I had been living in a black and white world and someone flipped on the color.”

“Do you remember the old, made-for-TV movie Wizard of Oz? Before Dorothy got to the land of Oz, the movie was in black and white. Once she arrived in Oz, the movie was in color. For those of us living/struggling with depression, we know what it is like to live in a black and white world with various shades of grey but no color. After the TMS treatment, I felt like I had been living in a black and white world and someone flipped on the color. It hasn't changed me into a "skip and whistle through the tulips" person, but I have never felt more peaceful in my life! I don't struggle with anxiety, worry and negative thinking like I used to. I was skeptical but I'm now a believer.”

“Several weeks into the treatment, my mood started to shift for the better… I was not hopeless anymore.”

“Having suffered from depression for more than ten years and trying every drug on the market, I was sure that nothing was ever going to work for me. When my doctor suggested this new therapy, I was sure that it would be like everything else I'd tried and I would get no relief. I decided to go ahead with the treatment because I was at the end of my rope. Several weeks into the treatment, my mood started to shift for the better. A week or so later, I noticed that I was not hopeless anymore; I was looking forward to the future. I was finally able to get back to the things I love: running, writing, and hanging out with friends. My concentration improved and I felt a little sharper. I would suggest this treatment to anyone who asks!”

“TMS Therapy was the only thing that worked…Now I can be the person I’ve always wanted to be!”

“TMS Therapy saved my life, it enabled me to be the best version of myself. Fighting depression and anxiety were ruining my relationships, my career, and my physical health. TMS Therapy was the only thing that worked, without it I would have continued on a downward spiral. Not I can be the person I’ve always wanted to be!”
